Sometimes, ambition can be a dangerous thing.

When a wannabe gangster kills a rival dealer and steals their drugs, he thinks he’s made the big time. But all he’s done is become the most wanted man in London — and it’s not just the police hunting him down.

For Detective Inspector Simon Wise, the murder of a drug dealer seems an easy case for his team to solve. But he should know London doesn’t do easy. Someone else is searching for the stolen drugs and they don’t care who they kill to get them back.

Still haunted by ghosts from his past and with his personal life falling apart, the odds are stacked against Wise as he tries to stop more bodies from piling up. Can he find the killer in time, or will he end up dead himself?
